From the Monte Rosa Hut, ascended the heavily crevassed Grenzgletcher and bagged Ludwigshöhe, Parrotspitze, Zumsteinspitze and Signalkuppe and then stayed overnight at the Margherita Hut. Returned to Zermatt the next day via the Grenzgletcher.

Great views from the highest hut in Europe. As mentioned by others, it was warmer inside than you'd expect!

I first visited Cabana Margherita in 1982, but it was a real pleasure to return with rgg and Alasdair all of 31 years later (OMG - I really must be old now!). Weather & conditions better than we had back then - an even more amazing place to spend the night than I remembered. Not very comfortable though - biggest problem was being much too hot - surprising considering we were at over 4500m. They need to work on ventilating the hut a bit better - maybe inhibited opening windows by the 2500m drop just outside!

After our original plans to climb the Dufourspitze and Nordend from the north failed because of an overdose of soft snow, we drove around from Switzerland to Italy to explore the Monte Rosa area from the south. The snow conditions were much better here, and we went over almost every little peak along the route from Rif. Gnifetto to Capanna Margherita - we only passed on Pyramide Vincent because we had already climbed it yesterday, and on Lyskamm East because we didn't like the look of the cornice high on its eastern ridge when we viewed it from Pyramide Vincent yesterday.

From Monte Rosa hut. Beautiful views of the matterhorn on the way and we trekked all the way from Zermatt and back to Zermatt on the way down. SPICY summit ridge climb, we encountered mixed conditions-steep snow, ice, steep rock scrambling with crampons. Free soloed the entire route with Matthew Sharples. Descended opposite side down icy chute with fixed lines which were iced over. Using a hand line was a little sketchy as usually these sections would be rappelled. Massive storm and powerful thunder overtook us right as we got down the mountain. We were scared witless and almost ran down the mountain because the air was so charged with electricity, got a bit spooked and I even felt a fuzzy sensation, sort of like a little jolt at the very upper part of my forehead.

Climbed from Citta di Mantova. Found it to be fairly long walk but great when you arrive at the summit and are at your final destination for the day!

Our final target that day. After climbed up several surrounding peaks, we arrived at Capanna Margherita quite tired and sleepy. Nice service in the hut :)

A part of our trip around Monte Rosa's plateau.
Climbed in perfect weather with Igi.

We came from the Quintino Sella hut and climbed Lyskamm Il Naso, Lowenshohe and Parrotspitze before. We reached the hut finally in a afternoon snow storm but what a great hut at 4500m!

Climbed the Signalkuppe in 1982 and spent 2 nights up at the Margarite Hut, up on the summit. The low atmospheric pressure was apparent when one of my companions opened a container of milk powder, which then erupted like a mini-volcano, plastering him in milk powder from head to foot.

From the Sella hut we went over Il Naso (4100 meter) on to the Monte Rosa trail. In good but windy conditions we traversed the Parrotspitze before reaching the Margherita hut on top Signalkuppe. Coming next morning there was no visibility and we had to cancel Zumsteinspitze and Dufourspitze and instead delicately find our way down the Grenzgletscher to the Monte Rosa hut in poor visibility. (July 27, 2000).
